Following December’s acquisition, former Absolute Radio comms director Cat Martin steps into the new role of communications director, Bauer Media Radio.

Former Absolute Radio comms executive Jonny Silver, meanwhile, will report to Martin as Bauer Media Radio comms manager.

The changes at Bauer Media Radio, which may review its agency use in the future, include the centralisation of comms staff into a five-strong team.

The restructure is aimed at allowing closer collaboration between radio and the group's magazines, including Grazia, Empire and a range of lifestyle publications.

"There were comms people dotted around the business before and we’re now bringing everyone together with Cat and myself," Silver told PRWeek.  

Brands within the Bauer Media Radio portfolio include KISS FM, Magic, Absolute Radio, Kerrang! and Planet Rock.
